Read this story from a highly aggrieved Livingston patron.  It seems to me that at any point in this story the nastiness could have been avoided, but everyone involved was determined to do the most a-hole thing possible.

Why did the restaurant accept the reservation if they knew there would be a loud party that night?  Why did this guy insist on bringing a two month-old baby?  Why did he let his party be seated when anyone could see this wasn't going to work?  Why did he keep complaining and asking for freebies?  Why were the waitstaff and managers so blase? 

I just don't understand.  Where's that bunny with the pancake?

Hey, I like insignificant web traffic...and insider dribble tastes pretty good with a nice lemon sauce.

For those that already read it, would you please post what was said about 285F?  I refuse to give the site owner any add revenue.

Ouch.

GG, please remove if copyright issues emerge...

285 Foodies
 This local site is made up of a small but spirited group of posters that are collectively more food knowledgeable than both Yelp! and Urbanspoon combined. And the opinions found on this site are far more reliable.
However, the core of this group has been together a very long time so one is forced to sift through all the insider banter (meaningless dribble) to walk away with the goods. A small price to pay, I suppose. But that coupled with insignificant web traffic, keeps this site from true greatness.
Verdict: Looking for that revelatory post that will mark the next great foodie stampede? Leave that to other sites, this one has too little web traffic. What you will find here is a passionate membership that possesses and applies good sense when it comes to food and drink. This site is definitely worthy of a visit.

But he missed the rest of the article and several comments about 285F. I decided to post on my blog and direct traffic there instead. So here is the link to the full article http://bit.ly/vistmyblog

This should apply... Or not to this thread.
I just happened to be watching Unwrapped tonight, (instead of my regularly scheduled programming because I was late getting to the remote) and lo and behold, This is how Papa John's does pizza was on. Anybody else catch it? Interesting. And I thought Shakeys Pizza was the bomb. snicker....
